tall ceilings with vintage ceiling medallions and modern decor. / sfgirlbybay

i adore my california craftsman bungalow style home — its sloped, open beamed white ceilings are a big part of what sold me. but sometimes, i miss the grandeur of the really tall ceilings you could find in san francisco victorians or a brooklyn brownstone — tall and usually not without those incredibly ornate crown moldings. these spaces fit that bill — beautiful sky-high ceilings and very often accented with a bold choice of paint on their walls to accentuate those killer moldings. plus, these taller rooms allow for some statement-making pendant lighting, and those pretty ceiling medallions. you can fake that look — faux medallions abound so go ahead and add a great light fixture and get the look — fake it ’til you make it to your very own sky-high ceilings.
